Student Clubs & Organizations

Joining a student club or organizations is a great way to meet new people, network, and explore shared interests. Some  even offer opportunities to participate in competitions where you can apply the knowledge you acquired in the classroom to a practical setting.

UAF has over 100 active student organizations to choose from. The following list is a selection of engineering-related clubs and organizations that may be of interest to you.

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries. Thirty-thousand of these members are students.

From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders, ASME's members are as diverse as the engineering community itself. ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach.
